KPT Design has been appointed and is developing the design for a new extension to the Grade II-listed Portico building on Linscott Road. The project will provide additional space and accommodate a new GP surgery.
The new main extension will be constructed using reinforced concrete frame. Taking into account the site levels and the soil conditions piled foundations will be used. Local retaining walls will be provided for the areas where the lower ground floor is “sunken. Co-ordination is required with the previous extension as the lower ground floor area is connected between the two.
Building next to the existing listed crypt and colonnade will be considered and the design adopted for the site specific needs.
